Supporting instrumental music in the Zionsville community


A Call to Action from the DeHaan Family Foundation

Let’s grow the Band & Orchestra Musical Instrument Endowment together!


Already, the Musical Instrument Endowment has purchased $40,000 in instruments for the Zionsville High School Instrumental Music programs. We’re excited to have a new goal and a challenge!

  • Goal: $250,000 in Endowment principal
  • Need: $40,000 to meet this goal
  • So far: Received $20,000 gift from the DeHaan Family Foundation with a challenge to match
  • Challenge: Receive $20,000 in donations from families, community, anyone who loves music!
  • Impact: MINIMUM  of $10,000 per year of instrument purchases in perpetuity

The Christel DeHaan Family Foundation provides support to arts and cultural organizations in central Indiana.  A community rich in artistic offerings enhances quality of life by providing opportunities to enjoy, learn and appreciate creative expression.

Our Mission


Play on Zionsville is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit whose work supports the Musical Instrument Endowment, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Boone County. From time to time, Play on Zionsville will support other instrumental endeavors in the Zionsville community.


Play On Zionsville, Inc. was established in 2015 as a 501(c) 3 with a primary purpose of overseeing the Zionsville Band and Orchestra Musical Instrument Endowment, held at the Community Foundation of Boone County. This fund’s intent is to provide long term monies for the traditionally larger and/or more expensive instruments, played by multiple students over many years. We have held multiple fundraisers to help grow this endowment. Play On Zionsville, Inc. also has the broader purpose of supporting all instrumental music in the Zionsville community.
